Rattling low-fi fuzz pop, flower-folk-pop and heavy freaked-out jams.
Retro-futuristic synthpop. Going back in time just to mess with the

Loosely structured jams and spontaneous creations from Dave Bailey on guitar, John Bailey on drums and keyboards, Daniel James on bass, Pete Bradley on keyboards and a guest appearance from Joe Caudwell on didjeridu.

Joe now records and performs as Cephalodidge
